Baskonia Team News

Baskonia beat Partizan in an incredible way last week. James Nunnally missed the game-winning free throw in fourth quarter and then Markus Howard hit a 3-pointer for overtime. There, Joan Penarroya’s team was calmer.

With two wins in first two rounds, Baskonia drew attention to itself. Absolutely no one saw them in hunt for the playoffs and they will have a hard time getting there, but a possible third win would raise their actions. In addition to Howard, Darius Thompson, Rokas Giedraitis, Maik Kotsar, Vanja Marinkovic and Matt Costello also play an important role in offense. Their defense is definitely the weaker part of this team and they will have to work a lot there in every game.

Even in this game against Red Star, Baskonia won’t deviate from its principles. They will try to impose their rhythm with a lot of three-point shots and thus look for a chance to win. Against Partizan, they were inferior in paint and this week’s opponent is even stronger.

Red Star Team News

Red Star were unlucky in last week game against Panathinaikos. Although they had a solid advantage in fourth quarter, Nikola Ivanovic made a couple of rookie mistakes, so red and whites remained without a win. They have two defeats after two rounds and they need to change that soon.

One of the problems for head coach Vladimir Jovanovic is that he doesn’t have all the players available. Nemanja Nedovic missed both games in the Euroleague, while Ognjen Dobric is still not 100% ready. That’s why Luca Vildoza was signed a few days ago, who should bring even more quality to backcourt. Team from Belgrade has over 15 players in its roster and the first task for coach Jovanovic will be to find a balance and to assign everyone the right roles.

In the past, Red Star knew how to beat Baskonia in Vitoria. Although Dejan Radonjic is no longer head coach, the players have confidence before this trip. If they repeat most of the game against Panathinaikos, they have something to hope for in Spain.

H2H

This will be 15th time that Baskonia and Red Star play against each other in the Euroleague. The current score is 7-7. Last season, home team won both times.

Injuries

Steven Enoch is injured and won’t play for Baskonia again. Nemanja Nedovic and Stefan Markovic are questionable for Red Star.

Baskonia vs. Red Star Prediction

Although they lost both games, Red Star left a more than solid impression. Baskonia had an easier schedule, so this 2-0 can be a bit deceiving. We believe that visitors from Belgrade will be an equal, if not even better rival in Vitoria. That’s why we expect them to cover this handicap and it won’t be a sensation if they even win.
